Has an eye for the ladies, loves a good fight. Splits his
sides over rude jokes. Won't ask directions no matter how
lost he is . . . even in a longship, for the love of Odin!
Sound like anyone you know? Maybe every man you know?
Toste and Vagn Ivarsson are all that and moreâ€”a lot more.
Identical Viking twins, they came squalling into this world
together, rode their first horses at the age of seven, their
first maids during their thirteenth summer, and rode off on
longships as untried fourteen-year-old warriors. And now,
having seen only thirty and one winters, they are about to
face Valhalla together. Or maybe something even more tragic:
being separated. For even the most virile Viking must
eventually leave his best buddy behind and do battle with
that most fearsome of all opponentsâ€”the love of his life.
